    I must have a good setup, because the cichlids just won't stop having babies! I had to give the first two batches to my lfs- and some are still there- and when I went back and told the owner I had even more, I could see the worry in his face! lol. Anyways, here they are! They're a mix from three moms- one OB peacock, and two red empresses. A second OB was holding, but she was far to young, and none of them made it.

    Thanks guys! Here are some pictures of the parents. Any chance anybody knows what the OBs might looks like when they're bigger?

    The first picture is the OB male, the second and fourth pictures are the female. The third picture is my red empress male (and half of a female), the last picture is the female.

    Tank is actually under construction... so you'll just have to wait :D I should be able to get pictures of it either tommorrow or Friday. It's pretty simple though- nothing like some of the other tanks I've seen on fishlore!

    Very nice!! They look good. I'd suspect that the fry would most likely look similar to the males. Hahaha if you have so many fry I might have to hit you up for some when I set up an African tank!

    Take as many as you like! I don't think my lfs likes it when I come in anymore, because they know it means I'll be asking them to take more babies! lol

    LOL do you just give them the babies?

    They've been giving me a dollar per baby- more depending on how big I get them. I'm not sure they'll be willing to take these this time, as they still have some of the fry from my last batch. Craigslist it is ;)

    Try Aquabid. Or the B/S/T forum on here!

    Shipping is easy :). I can explain it to you if you'd like.
